Department Of Justice Drops Federal Lawsuit Against North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Bathroom Bill!

no title

Donald Trump's administration is letting North Carolina take a huge piss on progress.

On Friday, the Department of Justice said it was dropping the lawsuit it filed last year over the state's controversial "bathroom bill" — which restricted transgender people's use of public bathrooms.

The Obama administration previously alleged the Tar Heel state violated the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination based on sex, and argued the federal rights law also applied to trans discrimination.

Well, the Trump administration sees the issue differently — or more accurately, not worth their precious golf-playing, bomb-deploying time.

Justice Department officials said they were bowing out of the lawsuit because NC legislators recently repealed a portion of the law that clearly banned many trans people from using restrooms that match their gender identity in government facilities.

But while one part of the law, known as HB2, was repealed, state legislators kept another portion intact and added a new measure — and the final product still leaves plenty of room for LGBT discrimination.

The So-Called Repeal Of North Carolina's 'Bathroom Bill' Is Bullshit!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikTwitterTransgenderLGBTSocial Issues

North Carolina's repeal is bullshit!

North Carolina simply cannot get its shit together!

Legislators were set to vote Thursday on the repeal of House Bill 2 (HB2), also known as the "Bathroom Bill," a bill that prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom that best adheres with their gender identities.

As a "compromise," legislators offered a new version of the year-old law that is ostensibly a repeal of HB2, but actually continues to ban local municipalities and schools from regulating bathroom access. It also prevents cities from offering their own job and bathroom protections until 2020.

It's not a real repeal! And still discriminates against LGBTQ people!

The NCAA has vowed to keep the state from any hosting duties until 2022, potentially costing it BILLIONS of dollars in revenue. It's also one of the reasons legislators are now scrambling to repair the damage. Too bad they just can't bring themselves to actually repeal the dumb and discriminatory law in the first place!

Plenty of celebs and LGBT activists decried the so-called compromise on Twitter:

Money talks…

After estimates came out that the state of North Carolina would be losing out on an insane $3.76 billion from the loss of business because of their LGBT-unfriendly law, it looks like HB2 may finally be history!

In a press conference on Tuesday evening — just hours after the NCAA gave the state an ultimatum about sporting events through 2022 — Senate Leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore revealed the General Assembly had agreed to a repeal of House Bill 2, aka the "Bathroom Bill!"

The Republicans said new Governor Roy Cooper offered up a proposal that will make the following changes:

Federal Judge Blocks President Obama's Move To Make All Public School Bathrooms Transgender-Friendly

no title

Way to represent, Texas…

As you probably remember, North Carolina became the laughingstock of the United States earlier this year when it tried to implement a series of bigoted bathroom bills aimed at the transgender community.

While most Americans condemned N.C. for its treatment of its LGBT citizens, we're sad to say yet another state is currently discriminating against trans individuals.

Apparently, President Barack Obama issued a ruling back in May that would make it so every public school had to allow its students to use the bathroom and locker room that matched with their gender identity.

However, Texas Judge Reed O'Connor took it upon himself to block Obama's move late Sunday evening, and we're hearing 13 states have now banded together to sue the Education and Justice Departments over their trans-friendly law.

Basically, as it stands now, public schools

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Too little, too late??

In the year since Caitlyn Jenner announced her true identity, the transgender icon hasn't exactly been the best representative for the LGBT community… or even an alright one, for that matter.

Luckily, it seems as though the dozens of conversations she's had with her I Am Cait friends castmates are finally starting to get through to her, because she actually spoke some truth at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday!

While she wasn't invited to any RNC events — because trans, duh — Caitlyn was able to speak outside Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena at an American Unity Fund brunch where she actually called out the GOP for spreading their own bigoted beliefs when they have a worse history with bathroom behavior, saying:

Donald Trump Spoke With Caitlyn Jenner Days After Meeting With Anti-LGBT Religious Groups — So Where DOES He Stand On The Bathroom Bill?!

no title

Over the past year, Donald Trump has said A TON of ridiculous and contradictory things.

But it looks like the politician might actually have to take a hard stance on that whole bathroom bill!

As you're probably aware, back in March, North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory signed the EXTREMELY controversial law which ultimately prevents a transgender man or woman from using the correct bathroom for the gender they identify with.

Many celebrities and politicians have already come out against the idiotic bill, but The Donald has somewhat remained on the fence — and it sounds like Caitlyn Jenner is okay with it!

Sure, we know Cait used Trump's bathroom in Trump Tower, but NOW we've learned the reality star actually met with the candidate shortly after
